Hi everyone, Denise here!
Pat Garcia won our August Challenge Moonlight Sonata with her stunning #flashfiction, Power of Touch. Those of you who read this amazing story will agree that it was unbeatable.
Our judge Nick Wilford said, Nick said - "Achingly romantic and a testament to the healing power of music. As important to the soul as to the ears."
Abruptly, she slowed the tempo, intentionally allowing herself to hold specific notes sustained, and closed her eyes to enjoy the timbre herself, and she felt Gianluca’s fingers walk across her waistline in beat with the piece as if he were playing the piano himself. She was happy he heard what she heard, albeit with his soul. Thankful that she’d taught him to treasure the power of hearing, not by listening but by perceiving it through touch, she smiled.
Writing with the WEP is one of my classic writing tools for strengthening my voice, helping me to profile my characters and define my settings. When I started writing with the WEP, I was a passable writer and far from being an author. Although my voice was feeble, I had vision, emotions, and voice. I read craft books, but craft books neglect to tell you that writing is a process, and you won't get it overnight. Writing is a journey.
Thank you, Pat Garcia. We are thankful to have you, too.
And a shout out for Pat. You can buy Pat's delightful award-winning short story, Turn the Light On HERE.
